Hazardous Waste Collection
Household hazardous wastes are common products found in the home. People usually store these materials for a time and eventually discard the unwanted items and their containers. When products are used according to label directions, most are not hazardous. Environmental problems can arise, however, if items are not disposed of properly.

Do NOT burn, bury, dump (in any yard, toilet or down a storm sewer) or mix leftover products. Chemical containers should not be reused for any other purpose. On Saturday, May 4, Kenosha County will provide Household Hazardous Waste Collection.

Saturday, May 4, 2013
8:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Kenosha County Center
19600 75th Street, Bristol

You may bring any products that say: Caution, Combustible, Corrosive, Danger, Flammable, Pesticide, Poison, Reactive, Toxic or Warning. They will recycle or dispose of it in an environmentally safe manner.

They are not able to accept: biological material or medical wastes, commercial waste, propane cylinders, explosives, radioactive materials, latex paint (not considered hazardous), or tires.

As a reminder, monthly hazardous waste collection at the Village Compost Site will begin in June. If you have questions about Hazardous Waste Disposal, please contact the Public Works Department at pw@plprairie.com or 262.925.6700, or click here.
